In the foggy, isolated city of Tantalum, witches and mages have embraced modern technology, causing magic to go extinct. Because of ancient prejudice, the mage-controlled government has denounced witches as violent and sinister and forced them to live in a walled-off section of the city, never to be seen or heard from again.
Fifteen year-old Celeste Ledford grew up an ordinary mage orphan at the majestic Lady of Light orphanage. As our story begins, her boyfriend breaks up with her, her best friend has caught the “What if I’m a witch?!” bug, and there are reports of a rogue witch running loose in a mage neighborhood. Everything is about to change for Celeste when the government mandates a blood test on all mage children to locate and “purge” unidentified witches. Soon, loyalties will be tested, hearts will be broken, and deeply kept secrets will be revealed.
Check back soon for teasers about the world of Tantalum and its characters.
